Hi Filipe,

It worked on the test server but on other servers were we tried it, it
turned out that they require IPADDR=0.0.0.0 to make it work.

I'm not sure what causes the difference yet (they are all up to date
CentOS 5.2) but just wanted to thank you for the tip, it allowed us to
close this issue for now.

Cheers,
